Identify the user listening on a remote TCP/IP port.
service-ident allows users to identify the user account listening on a remote TCP/IP port, given that the remote system is running an Ident server that isn't configured to hide this information.
service-ident helps system administrators verify that their Ident server isn't disclosing more information than necessary.
service-ident can be compiled and installed using Rust's package manager
cargo install --path .
service-ident can be run as follows:
service-ident <host> <post> [ident-port [ident-host]]
The program accepts the following arguments:
host: the remote host to connect to (required)
port: the remote port to connect on (required)
ident-port: the Ident port to connect on (defaults to
ident-host: the Ident host to connect to (defaults to the remote host)
